A bigly musical parody about Zombie Clown Trump running for reelection in 2020.

FNN (Fake News Network) – BREAKING NEWS!!!!!! Syria, Iran, North Korea, South Korea, and Sweden nuked! On a positive note, America is faring slightly better! Slightly! Dr. Ben Arson has unleashed a powerful virus on the country, in the name of a “cure-all” vaccination, and now millions of people, including our Clown President, have turned into zombies. Trumpcare 45. GREAT!

Will our Zombie Clown-In-Chief be reelected in 2020 and bring the hammer down on the world for good? Or will a group of heroes rise up and help deport Zombie Clown Trump to Twitterland forever?

Featuring parody music set to artists like The Beatles, Madonna, and Cee Lo Green, and five actors playing multiple roles, including everyone's favorite puppet, White Press Secretary Sean Sphincter, ZCT promises to treat one of the most dire moments in world history (FACT!) with guile, ingenuity and flat-out fun.

I wanted "Zombie Clown Trump" (Surprise! It's a musical), so badly, to be great.  But if wishes were horses….

In any case, the show is a hot comedic mess, with parody songs and profanity and general sillyness and sluttiness. But it is also fun, and a form of political commentary that you'll find at a Fringe Festival. It's not high art, folks.

A ride of non-stop "what-the-fuck?!"-ery spawned out of a bold and audacious piece of avant-garde theatre...and I relished every second! Raw, passionate, scary, and hilarious.

A really fun, yet frightening night at the theater. Scary because their parody really hits on how truly deranged Trump is. Lot of fun parody songs too! Go see this show!.

I really enjoyed this ridiculous show. It's kind of like a live-action episode of South Park episode, with unapologetic humor and hilarious parodies. i walked away feeling that, yes, while this show was very funny and silly, it is also not far from the truth! That was the lasting impression that stayed with me. The cast was fantastic, with great comedic timing, playing many different roles. I highly recommend this show!.

This show is the anti-Trump. The pre-show Trump zombie video was brilliant as were the in-show vids throughout. Craig Aldrich is a terrific puppeteer, giving a wonderful herky-jerky performance with voice and fingers inside Trump Press Secretary Sean Sphincter. Creator Rick Cipes is a menacing, elastic Trump, and half-way through the show I got so fucking depressed being fully reminded of who is actually now running our federal government that I tried to reach for an air-sickness bag. Maegan Mandarino and Dani Savka did a creditable job acting out the chaos and random whackiness of Cipes' script. And if it was their overall intention to drag me screaming and hurling into the street to bring down Trump, they did their job well.

Zombie Clown Trump is a well-intentioned satire of the Trump presidency, but it's a hit-or-miss collection of gags and song spoofs that are too random to form a cohesive whole. However well-deserved this righteous anger may be, there are too many targets and too many underdeveloped plot points here to make for a satisfying satire.

WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE I was so depressed by the political reality outside the theatre doors that I yearned for a 24-hour weed dispensary. MY OVERALL IMPRESSION If it was Zombie Clown's intention to bring trumpshit into full stinking virtual bloom, they did their job!

There are words that people use that may sound negative, but are meant as a compliment…”Ridiculous” is one of them. Zombie Clown Trump: An Apocalyptic Musical was…ridiculous…in the best way possible. If you're a fan of B-Movies, sketch comedy, or companies like Troma, I think you will like this, understand it, and “get” it. Zombie Clown Trump (played by Rick Cipes) takes current issues and situations from the real world and puts them into context in a way that makes you wonder if the real administration is done as a sideshow on purpose. This show had me laughing all the way through it due to song parodies (Michael Jackson, Madonna, John Lennon, and more) as well as a storyline that makes you shake your head, throw up your arms, and say “WHAT!!??”. Oh, did I mention there's also a puppet named Sean Sphincter? The absurdity of this show is also it's charm.

Funny, irreverent and absurdist. Zombie Clown Trump makes you laugh and makes you uncomfortable. It's silly, it's engaging and it demonstrates how close the Trump administration is to a stage show that features a barbie doll and a hand puppet as two of the main characters. If you can't break away from the Tweet-a-minute new cycle but want to laugh about the improbable state of our Trumpified world, this show is for you
